Matthew Settle, of Gossip Girl, is “thrilled” to be an expectant father.
“I’m not ready. I don’t think I’ll ever be ready,” he told People magazine at Tavern on Tuesday night. “But I’m thrilled.”
“We’re having a girl,” added a visibly pregnant Naama, who played Sara in You Don’t Mess with the Zohan. “It’s going amazingly. I love it. He’s very happy, very excited.”
In describing the feeling of being a first-time parent, Matthew invoked Jack Nicholson’s line from As Good As It Gets. “Before you have a child, everything is about you,” Matthew, 39, explained. “But my wife, and us having a child, makes me want to be a better man.”
Matthew also says that his character on Gossip Girl “is helping inform my real life.”
But when it comes to picking a name for the baby, Matthew and Naama are still undecided. “We’re not sure yet … we’ll see,” said Naama. “I want Angelica.”
